The Assurance of Warranties

Let's start by understanding what a warranty is. 

In a nutshell, a warranty is a guarantee from the manufacturer or seller that the product will perform as described for a specific period.

In UR's case, we provide a FREE 12-month warranty for all our devices, including our extensive selection of refurbished iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones.

This warranty is part of our PhoneCheck Certified promise. 

Each device goes through a comprehensive 70-point check, ensuring it's up to our standards.

If you encounter any issues, you can refer to our detailed refund policy and request a repair, replacement, or refund.

A Deeper Dive into Warranties: Limitations and Exclusions

It's important to note that w arranties come with limitations. Typically, they do not cover accidental damage or loss.

So, if you're prone to dropping your phone or leaving it behind at coffee shops, the warranty might not be sufficient.

Our FAQs section provides a wealth of information on what our warranty covers.

From the condition of our approved used devices to the particulars of technical malfunctions, you can find a comprehensive guide to help navigate potential issues.

The Comprehensive Cover of Insurance

Device insurance offers more comprehensive coverage. It is a policy you take out to cover your device against events such as theft, loss, or accidental damage.

If, for example, you happen to accidentally spill coffee on your phone or if it gets stolen while you're out for the night, a comprehensive insurance policy could be your savior, taking care of the costs to repair or replace it.

In other words, you get more comprehensive protection - something that a warranty cannot provide.

In the next section, we'll dive deeper into insurance policies, examining their benefits, drawbacks, and whether they're the right choice for you.

Device Protection: Warranty and Insurance

Warranties and insurance policies are two key pillars of device protection.

While the former guarantees device functionality, the latter safeguards against unexpected incidents.

But what do they specifically offer and how do they differ? Let’s delve deeper to understand.

The Trusty Warranty: A Safety Net for Your Device

You may wonder why you need a warranty for your refurbished device. That's where PhoneCheck Certified refurbished phones shine.

Before reaching your hands, these devices go through meticulous testing, assuring their excellent working condition.

However, in the rare case a problem arises, our 12-month warranty has got you covered.

"A warranty is like your device's safety net; it's there to catch any issues that might fall through the testing phase."

This warranty ensures the phone functions as promised. For example, suppose your refurbished phone experiences a battery issue within 12 months.

In that case, we will fix it free of charge. Thus, a warranty is more of a promise from us to you; a promise of quality, reliability, and exceptional customer service.

Accidents Happen: That’s What Insurance is For

Accidents are unpredictable, and this is where device insurance steps in. Insurance provides coverage for circumstances outside the manufacturer's liability.

Drop your phone on a hike, or accidentally immerse it in water? Insurance got it covered. It's a safety measure against mishaps that your warranty won't cover.

Device insurance gives you peace of mind, knowing you’re shielded from unforeseen events.

What’s in the Box?

Every PhoneCheck certified device comes with the essentials in the box. Expect to find your pristine device, a SIM ejection tool, USB cable, and charger.

But what about protection? With each purchase, we include a free 12-month warranty. That's right - coverage for your device, free for an entire year.

Let's recap: A warranty is a promise of device functionality, while insurance is your safeguard against accidents.

Together, they offer comprehensive device protection. With UR.co.uk, your investment is secure, and you can enjoy your device worry-free. 

Whether it's an iPhone, Samsung, or a Google Pixel, we've got you covered.

Trade-in: Turning Old into Gold

It's natural to desire the latest devices. But what do you do with your old ones? Leave them in a drawer, forgotten?

With our trade-in service, you can give your old device a new lease on life, earn some extra cash, and contribute to sustainability all at once.

UR.co.uk Trade-in: How it Works

Trading in your old device is a breeze at UR.co.uk. 

Follow these simple steps:

  1. Select Your Device: Visit our trade-in page and choose your device brand and model from the list.
  2. Assess Its Condition: Use our assessment tool to determine the condition of your device. We need to know its functionality and physical state to offer you a fair price.
  3. Get an Instant Quote: Based on your device's condition, we'll provide an instant quote. If you're satisfied with the price, then confirm the trade-in.
  4. Ship Your Device: We'll send you a prepaid shipping label, so all you have to do is package your device securely and send it to us.
  5. Receive Your Payment: After we receive and inspect your device, we'll issue your payment promptly.

The Green Impact of Trade-in

Trade-in plays a crucial role in promoting sustainability. It supports the circular economy, an economic system that eliminates waste by continually reusing resources.

By trading in your old device, you contribute to reducing electronic waste, one of the fastest-growing waste streams globally.

What's more, you help lower carbon emissions. Manufacturing a new device involves extraction of raw materials, transportation, and energy-intensive production processes, all releasing significant amounts of CO2.

In contrast, refurbishing involves fewer resources and less energy, reducing CO2 emissions.

Therefore, when you trade in, you're not only getting a fair price for your old device but also supporting a crucial environmental cause. 

It's truly a win-win situation!
